The Malecon is a wide 5 mile road with a sea wall that runs along the coastline in Havana. Again, you can see Morro Castle in the background. It took four years to get a worthy sky to include in this scene.
Is 4years the record for “Skyman” to wait for a sky??? Very nice image. When I was there the sky wasn’t the problem…the waves crashing over the skywall made images from the Malecon impossible.
It was worth the wait. By the way, your horizon is in the middle of the photograph. Gasp! Are you daring to break the rules of photography? If you are thanks.
This is so gorgeous. The wall and the castle signal both a welcome to the harbor and, at the same time, a warning or sense of protection. They are equally present in the image for me. How many times are these two polarities present for us (in us)? And yet there is the sky — open and beautiful, not taking sides, just spacious and clear. Thanks for sharing this and so great that you captured the sky.
Anticipation, patience, visualization and familiarity with your subject … ultimately the investment of time pays off and provides results! What fun would discovery and commitment be if we received all that we want the first time?
Congratulations Sky-and-Cloud Man JB! Have a super weekend!
Stunning and dramatic. Good eye and patience…as usual.
